Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks, including new Abyss and character banners


Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks have revealed tons of upcoming content, and this update looks packed with lots of stuff for users. With the return of the Golden Apple Archipelago, they will have much ground to cover, and gamers will be able to gather tons of treasure as they explore the islands.

They can use this treasure to summon some of the game's best characters, including the coveted Kaedehara Kazuha. This new update is set to go live on July 13, provided there are no delays.

The first banner of the 2.8 update will feature Kaedehara Kazuha, along with Klee. It will also likely bring the first introduction of Shikanoin Heizou, giving gamers even more incentive to summon for these two powerful rerun 5-stars.

Kazuha has been gone from the featured banner for almost an entire year, and Genshin Impact players will want to pick him up when he returns as he is an incredible character.

Leaks have stated that the second banner of 2.8 will feature Yoimiya, a powerful 5-star Pyro main DPS. Some individuals overlooked this 5-star character during her original rerun, so fans will want to give her another shot during the 2.8 update.

She can dish out tons of damage with the right team, and with Dendro on the way, having a strong Pyro damage source will be very helpful.
